The Bay County Grand Jury indicted Stephanie Michelle Collins on a charge of First Degree Murder.

Twenty-six-year-old Collins, of Fountain, was charged with the Nov. 2, 2008, death of her infant boy on the day of his birth. The indictment alleges death by asphyxiation.

Police say she suffocated her newborn, wrapped him in a plastic bag, then put him in a trash can.

Collins is being held in the Bay County jail, without bond.

If convicted, she could face life in prison or the death penalty. Her arraignment will be set at a later date.
